This is a real success story on many different fronts. Coming back to get his degree while in the NFL speaks volumes to how much the degree is worth.

That's awesome. Good for him. Getting paid AND educated. Speaks volumes to his character.
I didn't realize he was here in 2009. Damn, that team was loaded.
On another note about GT, I think the further away from GT you get in terms of attending, the greater you understand how prestigious it really is to attend it. You hear former athletes say it all the time, they didn't know how much weight a GT degree carried until after they left the school and went out to the "real world". Personally, I knew GT was a great school when I chose it, but it took me going out to the working world to realize just how much employers and clients respected the Institution. Can't tell you guys how many times GT opened doors or got professional relationships going.
